What does "casual fan" even mean in 2017 wrestling?

08 April 2017 - 08:31 AM

Yesterday I saw one of the usual arguments on twitter about "casual fans" and how dumb they all must be to only watch WWE or be Roman Reigns fans. At this point following WWE requires, at the bare minimum, 5 hours of weekly television watching. There really isn't anything "casual" about the fandom of someone who devotes 5 hours a week to watching wrestling. If you add in PPVs, 205 Live, NXT, Talking Smack etc the number only goes higher. Isn't it time to pretty much retire the term "casual fan" for someone who watches Raw and Smackdown every week? How much time does someone have to devote to watching wrestling every week before they can stop being looked down on?

So I'm pretty interested in Raw tonight to see where they go with Roman/Braun, if they do anything to follow up Roman eliminating Taker, whether they plant seeds of an Owens/Jericho match at Mania or go in another direction. Also hoping to see them NOT split up the awesome Cesaro/Sheamus team.


RIP Mocho Cota

Saw a few different trustworthy accounts on twitter report that lucha legend Mocho Cota has died at the age of 62. I know he was a favorite among some of the posters here and did fairly well in the GWE poll for a guy who didn't seem to get much love before the 80s Lucha set got released. Unfortunately we don't have a lot of footage of him during his prime in the 80s but what we do have makes him look like an all time great rudo.

 

RIP

Hey there was a 3 hour Raw last night and I'm sure some of you probably actually even watched it. I'd even guess that at least one of you goofs came to write about that episode of Raw and said "oh man there's no topic for this week, whatever will I do???" instead of completing the very arduous task of clicking the "Start New Topic" button.
